ea. vol: illus. by Richard Brown. unpaged. Viking. 1986. BD $2.95. LC number unavailable. PreS Parents may be troubled by how the concepts of friendship and safety are explored in these full-color board books for very young children. The cat Nicky has friends that include a baby, other kittens, two children, a man on a park bench, an elderly woman who feeds him from her porch, and a puppy. Although each character falls under the umbrella of friend, the relationships are not clearly defined, and the book will not hold children's interest. In No, No Nicky, the cat is pictured near a hot stove, an electrical outlet, spilled paint, and a cupboard full of cleaning supplies, but there are no clues as to why the situation is dangerous. Much adult interpretation will be required to help children understand the dangerous scenarios. The book itself fails to help children discern what is safe.

Nicky, the star of these board books, is a small gray-striped kitten with shoe button eyes. In No, No Nicky he goes after a goldfish, a hot pot, an electrical outlet and other off-limits items. But when he laps up his milk and goes to bed, he gets a "Yes, yes Nicky." Nicky's Friends include a cuddly baby, a boy and girl named Matt and Meg, a man and a lady (why not a "woman"?). In Let's Watch Nicky, the kitten jumps, stretches, scratches and eats, and finally decides to "watch you!" Brown's pictures show a winsome Nicky, in cozy surroundings. These books are short, funny and very much to the point. (6 months-3 years)
